Billie Von (Bell) Seward

July 28, 1941 — September 19, 2023

Arlington, Tennessee

Billie Von Seward was born on July 28, 1941, in Coushatta, Louisiana to the late Earnest Bell and Rachel Dowden.  After 82 years, she peacefully departed this life on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 in the comfort of her home surrounded by family.

Billie was married to Donald "Don" Roy Seward on April 25, 1969 and together, they have blessed many people's lives.  Having worked as a church secretary for many years, she loved the Lord, was always very involved in church ministries, and enjoyed singing in the choir.  Her main passion was taking care of her family, and was an excellent wife, mother, and grandmother.

She is survived by her husband, Don, three children, Ken Rawls of Louisiana, Karen Hervey of Louisiana, and Enoch Seward of Arlington, Tennessee, along with grandchildren Danielle, Whitney, Kyle, Thomas, Kari, Britney, Ryan, William, Caitlin, and Jake; and numerous great-grandchildren. She always loved 'her babies' and they all have fond memories of her reading books together, watching movies, and laughing. She is also survived by her loving sisters, Linda, Shawnee, Bobbye, and Dianne.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Johnnie and her brothers, Adrian, Donnell, Buddy, and Earl.

Graveside Services for Mrs. Seward were held at 3 P.M. Monday, September 25, 2023 at Seward Cemetery in Eads.
